Save playlists to Library

It's easy to add playlists that you've created, playlists that other Creators have made and videos that you've added to Watch Later to your Library. Adding playlists to your Library allows you to easily find and view them later.

If you own a playlist, you can publicly add it to your Library so that your viewers can add it to their Library. You can update your privacy settings to remove your playlists from view. By doing this, you'll still be able to see saved playlists on your own channel, but other viewers will not.

Follow the instructions below for the YouTube app or mobile site.
